Transportation Safety Board of Canada releases
2017–18 Annual Report
Gatineau, Quebec, 22 August 2018 – Today, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) published its latest Annual Report to Parliament, highlighting some of the annual statistics on reported occurrences in the aviation, marine, rail and pipeline modes of transportation and discussing the TSB’s investigative caseload, safety communications and outcomes in 2017–18. Some highlights include:
In 2017–18, the TSB made concerted efforts to reach out to Transport Canada, the regulator, to assist the Board in reviewing progress made on recommendations that had been outstanding for more than 10 years. Although progress is still slow on recommendations related to the TSB Watchlist, the Board was able to close 28 recommendations across the Air, Marine and Rail sectors, 26 of them as fully satisfactory. Since 1990, the Board has made 594 recommendations, almost 80% of which have led to positive change.
"It really has been a busy year," said TSB Chair Kathy Fox, "but none of these accomplishments would be possible without the substantial efforts of our staff. Their knowledge, expertise, and dedication are what makes the difference when it comes to advancing safety for all of us, from coast to coast to coast."
The Annual Report 2017–18, which is available on the TSB website, includes the list of all investigation reports released during the year with examples of the safety actions taken.
The TSB is an independent agency that investigates air, marine, pipeline, and rail transportation occurrences. Its sole aim is the advancement of transportation safety. It is not the function of the Board to assign fault or determine civil or criminal liability.
